Esther Ford

Esther obtained an MEng in Electronic Engineering after studying at the University of Kent and the Technische Hochschule Darmstadt. Having been awarded an Engineering Prize from the Royal Academy of Engineering, she then went on to obtain a PhD in Microelectronics from the University of Cambridge. During her research, Esther developed a nanodot array single electron device with controlled threshold voltage at high temperatures. She also presented the Institute of Engineering and Technology (IET) Faraday Lecture "The Digital World", which was delivered to live audiences throughout the UK and broadcast over Europe and North America, reaching an audience of 20,000.

After completing her PhD, Esther worked as a research engineer in Nortel Networks and subsequently in a telecommunications design consultancy. She joined the patent profession in 2004 and has extensive experience in managing international patent portfolios. She also has significant experience representing clients at the EPO in oppositions and appeals (both defending and opposing). Esther is highly proficient in German.

Esther joined Marks & Clerk in 2008, and in 2011 enjoyed a secondment as an in-house attorney for a valued client in the Oil/Gas industry. Her recent focus has been in the fields of Internet Service Provision, Oil/Gas recovery, Power Electronics, and the Internet of Things.
